We start out with Daehyun’s huge uh-oh moment.
Daehyun stammers that of course she’s not interrupting anything and yells at Saetbyul to get off, literally tossing her on the floor again. But Saetbyul gets the urgency of the situation and isn’t too pissed about it.
He tells Yeonjoo that this looks bad of course, but that’s not what she thinks. Yeonjoo sweetly says that she trusts Daehyun and guesses that he was congratulating her. Saetbyul rapidly agrees that they were just joking around. Both look really nervous. I almost feel bad for Yeonjoo. Daehyun tells her to get back to work and makes to leave on a date with Yeonjoo but Yeonjoo invites Saetbyul for dinner. Daehyun’s really worried about this and tries to say that she has work but Dalshik chooses right then to come in and, of course, he gets relegated to taking care of the store. And thus begins episode 5! Continue reading “Backstreet Rookie Ep 5 Recap (and Daehyun keeps lying)”
We start off with the aftermath of Yeonjoo calling Daehyun, and Daehyun not noticing Saetbyul and shoving her to the ground. Upon realizing it’s her, he does the worst thing imaginable by accusing her of attacking Yeonjoo. Saetbyul asks Yeonjoo to correct his misunderstanding but Yeonjoo pretends to be suuuppper hurt (oh boy, now that’s unnecessarily vindictive)

We start off with what has to be a dream. I mean WHAT IS THAT HAIR?
Saetbyul and Daehyun face off in a dance-off. She marvels at how good he is at dancing and he tells her that that’s how he became manager of the store (Pfftt). One the dancing comes to an end, he grabs her in a classic seductive ending pose, and she promptly plants a kiss on him. Continue reading “Backstreet Rookie Ep 3 Recap (and I’m getting disappointed)”
We cut back to Daehyun hearing about Saetbyul and her friends raiding the store. He tells Yeonjoo he has to get going because of “the part-timer girl”. She pouts saying they barely got started exercising and he mutters that he’s sweated enough for today. As he leaves, Yeonjoo’s face falls. She mutters that of course the part-timer has to be a girl.
Daehyun runs back to the store to see Saetbyul and her friends having a really good time.
He confronts her, and she tries to play cute asking why he’s here so early. He says he here to fire her and she conveniently passe out drunk at that point and thus begins episode 2! Continue reading “Backstreet Rookie Ep 2 Recap (and dancing shenanigans)”
We start off with our hero CHOI DAEHYUN, merrily walking on his way with a bouquet of flower when he stars at a street sewer. His eyes grow wide in shock and he pulls off the grate immediately. Turns out there’s a cat trapped in there. He sticks himself down the grate to save the little kitten as car honk around him and bewildered school girls look on. He’s covered in sewer filth and stinks but panics when he looks at the time and runs off, almost forgetting his bouquet.
At the same time, our heroin JUNG SAETBYUL runs past him. Their elbows slightly bump into each other and they stare at each other in slow motion, but go on their respective ways.

Heaven know why but I”m more nervous than Jisung as to the outcome of tonight’s drama awards. Having been snubbed for the grand prize at the Baeksangs, I’m praying this’ll be the night he is properly honoured for his talents. I did download the complete ceremony but MBC’s being slow with updating the clips so some videos are missing 🙂 In the meantime I’ll post translations of all the speeches.
EDIT: JISUNG WON THE DAESANG PEOPLE!
The hosts for the night Shin Dongyup and actress Lee Sungkyung (who did an opening song and dance for the ceremony) did start off by telling winners to try and make their speeches as brief as possible due to this being a live broadcast and not wanting to run over time, which I thought was a pretty poor move to make that chances are that you’ll forget someone if you speed through things but there you go!
